Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Lexus ES 300h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Acura TLX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura TLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus ES 300h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TLX and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TLX has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TLX and the Lexus ES 300h.

Warranty
The Acura TLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 300h.
